“Green Day Rocks Broadway,” the half-hour behind-the-scenes documentary of the new Broadway musical American Idiot, will air on MTV, its website and subsidiary channels beginning April 16 at 7 PM ET.
American Idiot is currently in previews on Broadway with an official opening April 20. As previously reported, the show has joined forces with MTV in a month-long media blitz to promote the Green Day-penned musical and introduce some fans of the band to its newest endeavor. There was a week-long sweepstakes earlier this month that will give 300 fans the chance to attend the show’s April 22 performance and the premiere of Green Day’s latest video, “Last of the American Girls.” The half-hour documentary won’t reveal the entire show, but it will give fans a peek at the creation of Broadway’s latest rock musical, based on the 2004 Green Day album of the same name.
In anticipation, check out this clip of the recording session for “21 Guns,” one of the songs in American Idiot from Green Day’s most recent album, “21st Century Breakdown.”
